Can Christians please answer this question?

Does being a Christian and supporting gay rights and marriage also Condemn you to hell? Is it being hypocritical? Please help!

Im not Christian but it should not condemn you to hell and neither should being gay. I cannot tell you enough how I am disappointed in people who are of the Christian church and burn down gay people's houses. they can express their beliefs and relationships anyway they desire without people telling them they are not wanted in this world.

I'm sorry to hear about that act of violence "Christians" are committing, but please know not all of us are like that. Thanks for answering:)

Being a Christian and a Church Member are not the same. A true Born Again Believer in Jesus would not burn someone's house for being homosexual or any other reason.

God's Word tells us that some (people) are made for great things and others for not so great things. Equality in our eyes are not the same as in GODs eyes. He loves all people the same.

Well, we shouldn't agree with it at all since the word said it's wrong. However, we shouldn't treat them as if they were evil people. We're supposed to love them as much as anyone else.

If your a Christian and support gay marriage you won't be condemned to hell. There are different levels of Christian maturity. A person who became a Christian a week ago won't understand God the same way as a person who has been a Christian for years. God won't condemn you for things you don't understand.

We are supposed to love people and let God make the judgment.

Not Christian myself, but it shouldn't condemn you to Hell to support LOVE and treating people as equals....and it shouldn't condemn you to Hell for being Gay yourself either.

Gay Marriage isn't about religion as many Christians would have you believe.
It is about basic humanity. If a same sex couple has a problem they are on their own where as a "Traditional" couple (One man and one woman) has government support they can turn to.

I have friends that are a same sex couple.
They have been together for 30 years. One is in the hospital.
If they were "Traditional" then the other could be supported if one passes away, but since they aren't recognized as a "Real Couple" then the Social Security, Medical, Pension, and Retirement will NOT be carried over and made available to the other.

This means they will basically be put out on the street because of who their heart had love for.

60% chance?

Before you start throwing out false statistics, please understand consequences of leading people astray.

Where did you come up with "60%"? You either follow the word of God or you don't. You either end up in heaven or the other place. Being gay isn't an automatic death sentence to hell. Any more than being a christian isn't a free pass to heaven.

It does not condemn you to hell. God gave us a brain to think for ourselves, and he expects us to use it

If you are a follower of Christ then you can't "support" what God is against. That goes for anything. But you can be loving & kind to those that may choose to be different than you. We can't judge, that is God's place.

Homosexuality is a sin and should not be condoned it is not a case of civil rights, it is immoral. There are scriptures in the Bible that let you know that God said it it is a sin and an abomination. Some one is lying to those people, and they need to stop.

Do you not sin ? Jesus came to save man from his sins,and any Christian that turns someone away from God,come judgement day will have there blood on there hands.
Report as
If the Christian does not let the sinner know, yes his blood is on the Christian. If he does inform the sinner the sinners blood is on the sinner.

It is hypocritical because in the bible it clearly states that men are not to be in a relationship with other men.

Being born gay is not a choice that they made, and if you are born gay then that would make it a generational curse handed down to them,that can be broken then the demon cast out.yes being gay is a sin,not a death sentance because Jesus died for our sins.

Correct.

I dont know that it would condemn you to hell but it is a position displeasing to God. Its difficult to find that balance between sympathising with and supporting otherwise generally lovely people and understanding where they are coming from, and maintaining a position that also pleases God. I suggest reading a great book called Red Letter Christians by Christian sociologist Tony Campolo. It has aninteresting section on loving our gay brothers and sisters but still maintaining our Christian perspective on gay marriage and the politics surrounding it. It is available electronically from amazon.com. Tony Campolo is also an ordained straight minister but he has room in his heart to love all people with Gods love.

How could any mere mortal know what god thinks about anything. This question can not be answered. You can only get opinions.And your opinion is probably as good as any.

I'm not a master on the subject, but if supporting gay marriage condemns you to a eternity of fire and extreme pain, then I need to start looking up the conditions to become a Buddhist.

First when we all die - we go to "Hell" which is nothing more then mankind common grave. Eccl 9:5 -) "For the living are conscious that they will die; but as for the dead, they are conscious of nothing at all, neither do they anymore have wages, because the remembrance of them has been forgotten."

If we are Christian - we learn in our instruction to Love what God love and to hate what God hates. (Psalms 97:10)-"O YOU lovers of Jehovah, hate what is bad. He is guarding the souls of his loyal ones; Out of the hand of the wicked ones he delivers them."

Romans 1:26,27 "That is why God gave them up to disgraceful sexual appetites, for both their females changed the natural use of themselves into one contrary to nature; 27?and likewise even the males left the natural use of the female and became violently inflamed in their lust toward one another, males with males, working what is obscene and receiving in themselves the full recompense, which was due for their error."

How can you call yourself a Christian and willing support something GOD says in His Word is an abomination. Will He send you to He'll if you do? No, if you ask for forgiveness and Repent of it.
